Southern Gothic Adventure “NORCO” Coming to Consoles in October
Indie game publisher Raw Fury recently announced that the point-and-click narrative adventure NORCO is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbone, and SeXbox on 20 October. The game will also be available on Xbox Game Pass.
Developed by game dev collective Geography of Robots, NORCO is described as a “Southern Gothic” narrative set in a pixel-art recreation of Southern Louisiana.
Here’s the official breakdown of NORCO from Raw Fury:
NORCO drags players into a gritty, distorted version of South Louisiana. While searching for your missing brother in the aftermath of your mother’s death, players must team up with a fugitive android and explore the sinking suburbs, rundown strip malls, drainage ditches, and verdant industrial swamps of Louisiana’s petrochemical hinterlands.
NORCO is the debut title from developer collective Geography of Robots. Lead creator Yuts was born and raised in Norco, Louisiana, an acronym for New Orleans Refining Co., located in the so-called “Cancer Alley,” a stretch of the Mississippi that accounts for 1/4 of the US’s petrochemical production. The game blends real locations, personal stories and Southern Gothic literature with a captivating original soundtrack featuring a guest track by Southern metal Band THOU.
NORCO is already available for both Windows PC and MacOS via Steam, GOG, and PC Game Pass. The game is currently scheduled to release for PS4, PS5, Xbone, and SeXbox on 20 October.
